Sung-Yueh Perng is a Postdoctoral Researcher on the Programmable City project, exploring current and emerging collaborations and contestations in the processes of situating codes, software, geodata and mobile devices in their social, spatial and technological configurations.
Before joining NIRSA, he worked in Department of Sociology, Lancaster University, on the BRIDGE project, investigating social and ethical opportunities and challenges arising from incorporating social computing into emergency response. He also explored various ways in which routines in everyday life have been (and continue to be) reshaped through the exposure to and engagement with innovative ideas and practices, digital and locative arts, wireless signals and various mobilities systems.
His research draws on mobilities research, science and technology studies, social and cultural geography, media and communication studies, participatory design and CSCW, and is particularly interested in mobile, participatory, experimental and engaged research methods.
